Even if they could get the vote they will never be able to provide a ISO or iso9002 type standard as their software / quality is not even close to ISO standards and so would loose the ISO standards approval quickly. It might be easier for them to close Microdaft down permanently than try to get close to ISO standards / fix the software.

hmmm ... i am not so sure ... if they want can create good software ... ooxml is bad and full of proprietary lock-in because they want to be in this way .. a last move to keep a bigger stream revenue ... but if they are forced, because ooxml is rejected, i suspect the last shot in bill arsenal is to make ooxml a real standard, or even to adopt odf format for msoffice! only to keep a foot in the business, and with risk to loose a big part of m$ empire cash revenue stream ... i see here that m$ strategy is not to keep cash in his pocket but to prevent by any means that this cash stream to flow in others direcÅ£ions ... this is the main objective now in microsoft tactics ... if you can't keep it, destroy it! but don't give it to your enemy!
linux is free, the expertise to harness it is not!
you don't make so much money selling open source software!
You make MORE money USING it, just like google!
